possessions . Libyan War



A week elapsed between the landing of the sailors and the arrival of the expeditionary force, and during this time the sailors, besides patrolling the town, had to hold a defensive line some 8 m. in length.below

If the Turks had chosen to attack, they could almost certainly have retaken Tripoli. But they made better use of the time allowed them. The blow against the Italians in Tripoli came unexpectedly.
 During the early days of the occupation the belief that the Arabs would never make common cause with the Turks led to an overconfidence and lack of vigilance.
 There was little apprehension of an attack now that the Italian troops were in great superiority over the Turks, and the conviction that the Arabs were friendly led to no hindrance being placed upon communications between the town and the surrounding country.Look at the previous images of the Turks and work out how you can tranform these ww1 Turks , shouldnt be hard.Reamsa

Arabs, and supposed Arabs, came and went freely. It was due to over-confidence also that the disarmament of the natives was not pursued with vigour or system until it was too late. In this way it was possible for the Turks, and those Arabs who were opposed to the coming of the Italians, to arrange for a rising behind the lines which should coincide with an attack.http://turkishtoysoldier.blogspot.com
To the west and south the Italian lines faced the open, rolling plain, but on the east, for a distance of two miles, they ran through the wide strip of palm groves and fruit gardens that stretches eastward from the town for nearly a dozen miles.
 Against this part of the line the Turks and Arabs, favoured by the thick vegetation, attacked suddenly on the morning of Oct. 23, simultaneous demonstrations being made on the south and west. The attack upon the regiment of Bersaglieri who held the long line in the oasis was carried out with decision and was aided by a simultaneous attack from a number of natives within the lines.http://turkishtoysoldier.blogspot.com On the left, by the village of Shara Shat, two companies were overwhelmed and cut to pieces, and the rest of the regiment was hard put to it to hold its own. Supporting troops were sent up from the town, but they had to fight their way through the network of gardens, sniped by those of the local Arabs who had joined in the fight, and the much greater number who had come through the gap made by the destruction of the two companies at Shara Shat. The fighting lasted all day, but in the evening the assailants were finally driven off.
